Terry Needs Your Help
This week, the American Patriot Foundation heard from a retired Navy SEAL, shocked by the stunning decision by a civilian court in which a terrorist suspect/detainee was convicted on only ONE count of 249 criminal charges: "Let me see if I understand this, Col. Lakin can get a more severe punishment that Ahmed Ghailani?"
Unlike Ghailani, LTC Lakin is being tried in a military court-- for defying military orders in order to seek the truth about whether Obama is legally, Constitutionally eligible to serve as Commander-in-Chief. LTC Lakin's sworn oath as a military officer requires him to uphold the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
No one in his chains of command or in his Congressional delegation could tell him-- after more than a year of seeking assurance that his orders were lawful-- if Obama met the requirements of Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution of a "natural born citizen" and was entitled to command the U.S. Armed Forces. LTC Lakin's military orders to deploy to Afghanistan under Obama's announced surge, included a requirement that he present copies of his birth certificate (to which he dutifully complied).
We continue to be amazed at an administration that balks at producing such a simple, elementary document-- one that every US citizen possesses and is asked to show many times during his or her lifetime.
Thanks again to everyone who generously volunteered their time for Terry Lakin Action Week-- we are making headway- and want to encourage everyone to keep up the phone calls, letters and emails to elected officials on behalf of LTC Lakin. Your outreach is making a difference. Please keep spreading the word to others!
The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee (majority/minority contacts listed below) is the major investigatory body in the House of Representatives. We recommend lodging a protest at the denial of traditional due process rights to LTC Lakin, a criminal defendant. Since LTC Lakin is being denied access to evidence-- to documents-- which could prove his innocence- we urge Terry's supporters to make contact with the Committee Members and staff and urge the Committee to use its subpoena powers to force open the sealed records necessary to determine whether Barack Obama is a "natural born" citizen and therefore constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President.
At the very least, the administration has wasted a huge amount of the nation’s time. At worst, Obama is in fact not eligible to be President. Would that be uncomfortable? Would it be inconvenient? Would it be problematic? Of course. But this nation has survived many traumatic events in its past and would survive this. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land- and it must be upheld.
Similarly, in the Senate- the chief oversight committee is Homeland Security and Government Affairs:
